This 2.5-hour kids workshop is created to share with children the natural life cycle of a cow and how we have been receiving food, clothing, and leathers from them for a very very long time. Each child will be painting on their pre-cut leather house and watch it transform from a 2-dimensional flat piece to a 3-dimensional House Coin Bank using basic sewing and knotting techniques.
Dimensions - 13cm (H) x 12cm (W) x 10cm (D)
Keeps - Coins, Notes, etc.
Suitable for ages 5 and up.
Prior experience is not required.
Children will learn to: - appreciate the materials and foods obtained from cows - paint on leather using a water-based dye - create holes on leather and other tough materials - join leather pieces using rope and basic knotting techniques - see a 2-D pattern form into a 3-D structure - start saving - (also probably on their own) find creative materials to help dig out the money when short in cash
・ Leather (from Tuscany, Italy) and all craft materials will be provided.
・ Although aprons(for children) are available for use, we recommend you and your child wearing clothing which you won't mind getting stained
・ Water will be served. Children may bring their own water bottles for additional precaution during this period.
Due to Covid-19, each class is limited to 2 seats per session. (Updated on 8th May 2021) Each child can be accompanied by 1 ~ 2 adults.
